A spokesman for Georgia’s Environmental Protection Division said a permit issued this week that allows King America Finishing to continue releasing wastewater into the Ogeechee River would “make the discharge the most highly regulated in the state.”
Also, the Screven county textiles plant, which employs about 500 workers, would be closely monitored and fined for having operated for years without a permit.
King America agreed to fund $1.3 million in environmental improvement projects to benefit the Ogeechee River under a new consent order reached with the Georgia EPD, EPD spokesman Kevin Chambers said Wednesday.
